Congratulations on passing. I'll not be out on mine for another couple of months at least.
Still way too much salt, grush, holes, ice and the odd rabbit on the road for me.

Enjoy!

Cheers

And congratulations from me too!
Not the best time of year to take the test, but when you gotta go..... salute Well done. clink

Just follow the advice above and take it easy to start with. I still remember my first time out on the 'cat, so will you. Keep a healthy scepticism of your skills, anticipate the un-expected and if you feel you're going too fast - you are, slow down.

Come and join one of the ride-outs - you'd be most welcome.

Keep it shiny side up. great

Chris

Well had my first outing on the cat and what a difference from riding the training school bikes.
First 20 minutes and thought what the hell have i bought then i started to get used to it and god it felt good. Very Happy

I have heard the tyres ive got on it are not the best so still a bit wary on how much grip ive got but i suppose that will come in time and when we have some dry roads.

Anyway just hoping now for some decent weather so i can get out there and enjoy it.
